It’s annoying and frustrating when your favourite brand
of aftershave, perfume or cosmetics is discontinued by the manufacturer and you have to change
to another brand.
It’s even more disappointing and worrying when your trusted
brand of medication is no longer available.
Actavis, who make the Aindeem brand of finasteride
1mg tablets have been acquired by Accord.
Accord are now manufacturing the finasteride 1mg tablets
to the exact same recipe that Actavis did.
This means that all the same excipients (the inactive
ingredients) used to make the Aindeem brand are being used to make the Accord brand. Each Accord tablet
contains 1mg of Finasteride just like Aindeem brand.
Therefore, the tablets will be exactly the same.
The only difference is that they will now be branded
“Accord” instead of “Aindeem”.
However, we understand that when our customers are taking a
hair loss product that they have confidence in and faith that it works, that they don’t want
to switch to another product that they fear may not produce the same successful results.
Please be assured that the new Accord brand will produce
the exact same results for you as the Aindeem brand.
When our current stock of the Aindeem brand runs out we will
be supplying the Accord brand.
The advantage to you is that you will now pay less for the
Other generic manufacturers of Finasteride may use different
excipients and so they will not be exactly the same but should produce the same effect. The
best way to check is to consult the patient information leaflet.
We believe in giving our customers a choice, so we will not only be stocking the Accord brand but also another generic brand that will be more competitively
